Ghana has moved to the seventh position on the continent in the latest FIFA Coca Cola ranking released on Thursday.

The Black Stars slip on the log could be attributed to their disastrous 2019 Africa Cup of Nations campaign where they got eliminated in the round of 16.

The West African Country maintained their 50th position on the global ranking by the world football governing body.

African champions Algeria (40th, up 28) are the biggest mover in the July edition by ranks and points (up 117), while fellow finalist Senegal (20th, up 2) did not make a huge leap but reached their best-ever Ranking position.

Semi-finalists Nigeria (33rd, up 12), are joined by surprise quarter finalists Madagascar (96th, up 12) and Benin (82nd, up 6) in seeing their continental performances rewarded with a Ranking rise.
